SCI IEQCC Network Moves Towards Evidence-Informed Equitable Care for Individuals With Spinal Cord Injury
A recent article published by the University Health Network discussed the expansion of the Spinal Cord Injury Implementation & Evaluation Quality Care Consortium (SCI IEQCC) network, promoting better care for individuals with a spinal cord injury nationwide. Praxis is proud to fund the national expansion covering four provinces in Canada and the network areas include tertiary rehabilitation hospitals from Alberta, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and PEI.
“Praxis is very pleased to support five SCI rehabilitation hospitals in these four provinces to join the Spinal Cord Injury Implementation & Evaluation Quality Care Consortium, as it aligns perfectly with the goals of Praxis’ Care Program, which is to achieve evidence-informed equitable care for Canadians who sustain an SCI.”
Vanessa Noonan, Director of Research & Best Practice Implementation,
Praxis Spinal Cord Institute.
The participating sites include University Health Network, St. Joseph’s Health Care London, Providence Care Hospital, the Ottawa Hospital, and Hamilton Health Sciences.
Dr. Cathy Craven, Evaluation Leader of the Consortium, Senior Scientist, and Medical Director of the Spinal Cord Rehab Program at Toronto Rehab, on the need for the expansion, “Right now, the quality of SCI care patients receive is largely dependent on where their accident takes place and the proximity of the tertiary rehabilitation centre to their home.”
